Honda Teases 2016 CBR500R Ahead of AIMExpo Debut
Today Honda announced that it would be debuting the updated 2016 CBR500R at next week’s American International Motorcycle Expo (AIMExpo), including the world debut of the updated 2016 CBR500R. In advance of the world premiere, Honda just released two teaser images, one showing the new LED dual headlights (above), and another photo which features the silhouette of the new motorcycle:
The AIMExpo will be held October 15th through the 18th at Orlando, Florida’s Orange County Convention Center, and attendees will be the first to see the midsize sport bike.
According to Honda, the 2016 CBR500R has “DNA taken from the premier CBR1000RR,” and is aimed at entry-level sport riders or those looking for an affordable daily driver. Along with the new LED dual headlights, the 2016 model gets new styling and “numerous refinements.”
Honda will be displaying several other 2016 motorcycles at the AIMExpo, along with side-by-sides and ATVs. Consumers at the event will also get their first in-person look at the RC213V-S MotoGP bike for the street and the Pioneer 1000 flagship multipurpose side-by-side.
Honda will also offer some test rides on its road-going motorcycles to AIMExpo guests, as well as some side-by-sides and ATVs.
